  1. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 1 post to view.
  2. I've got one of these and it's brilliant. It is indeed a J Mascis in a different colour, so you can get the same spec as the Mascis for about 1/3rd less. I swapped the pickguard and plastic parts on mine
  3. I've never been a big user of nickels, if I'm not using flats then Pro Steels are my string of choice.
  4. The alignment of the strings over the pickup is off on the D and G strings, but fine on the E and A. I've tried moving them around into different grooves on the saddles but it's not making a huge difference. I'd prefer to have just one groove per saddle anyway, but the Hosco was a good price and had a good rep.
  5. It wasn't so much the different features available on a bridge, it was more of an "is the Kluson/Fender option really worth 4 times as much as the no name one" sort of question.
  6. Are these all much of a muchness? I'm looking for a bridge for my P Bass; it's currently wearing a Hosco threaded-saddle bridge which isn't really doing it for me. Looking at the various options, there are cheap, no-name ones which can be had for under a tenner, or a genuine Fender or Kluson one costs about 40 quid. There are Gotoh ones priced in between those options, but they either have a curved base plate, or are higher mass, like the 201, which isn't what I'm after. The Wilkinson bridge has that awful logo stamped on it. What's the best option for standard, BBOT, single-groove saddled bridge, or is there very little in it?
  7. I've got Dunlop flats on both my P Basses. The first set I bought has some sort of coating on the black silks so that they don't fray, but the second set, bought from the same shop, don't have the coating. I was a bit annoyed, because the coating is a great idea IMO.
  8. 1mm Blue Dunlop Tortex. I've used them for years and can't use anything else.
  9. I love it. I remember wondering what this would look like with a black pickguard when it was up for sale previously; 'absolutely smashing' is the answer.
  10. I bought a set of these from guitar guitar earlier in the year, and they're great, but I bought another set a month or so ago and they feel a lot stiffer to play. The first set I bought had some sort of coating over the silks, whereas the second set doesn't, which leads me to believe that the first set are newer and the second set are older stock. As the packages are sealed, is there a way to tell what you're getting?
  11. I'll be honest, I didn't know such a thing existed until now. I'm not sure that if have the space though, the plan was to have vertical hangers on different walls.
  12. I'm looking to get a couple of wall hangers so that I don't have my instruments laying around the house. I've bought some Hercules hangers but my issue with them is that they stick out quite a bit from the wall, even the ones with the metal bracket, rather than the wooden mount. Ideally I'd like something that sits in a bit closer, but it also needs to securely hold the bass; I've got a cat who would I know would be elated at having something new to paw at, and I don't want him to be able to knock them off.
  13. Thanks for all the replies so far. I've been thinking about this a bit more; is adding washers to the truss the right way to go here? I've screwed the truss nut in as far as I can, and there's still a bit too much of a bow; it's a tiny bit more than I'm aiming for, but the truss has definitely reached it's max. Would I be better off taking the nut/adjuster out and trying to clamp the neck straight or in a back bow before adding the nut back in? I watched Dan Erlewine's video on clamping an old Tele bass neck, and he didn't seem to leave it clamped for any length of time. Is it as quick and easy as it appears?
  14. I had seen the Fender ones, but can't find them in the UK anywhere
